setting up temporary subdomain for testing

I am moving my site from a cpanel server to directadmin and I have never used DA before. Before switching the DNS for the main domain I want to point over to the new server's IP so that I can test things out and make sure I didn't screw up anything in the transfer. I see in the admin panel how to add a subdomain but how do I point it to the root folder? or for that matter if I wanted the subdomain to be pointed into a subfolder of the root domain how do I do that? In cpanel when I set up the subdomain it asked me what folder it should be attached to. I don't see that here in DirectAdmin. Am I missing something?
